NEW Eels recruit Ben Roberts doesn't have a point to prove against his old club the Canterbury Bulldogs on Friday night — but he has two points on his mind.
"The competition points are the most important thing," said Roberts, who spent the most of 2011 in exile in the NSW Cup.
"I don't feel I have a point to prove.
"I just want to do my best for Parramatta and do everything I can to get the two points."

His immediate concern is bringing consistency into his game after his worst performance in the blue and gold last Sunday.
"To make those mistakes that I made [on Sunday], I got no excuse for it, other than probably lack of concentration . . . it's unacceptable," said Roberts, who produced a string of errors including a 15 metre forward pass and a key missed tackle on Liam Fulton.
"The sad thing is these are the sort of areas I've tried to cut out of my game all year."
Roberts, who spent five years at Belmore, said he still had several friends at Canterbury with whom he keeps in regular contact.
But come Friday night, the gloves are off.
"It's always fun running out against your mates — but in the end it is about winning," he said.
"So, if that means stopping a mate scoring a try or me scoring one over them it has to be done.
"I've never played against the Bulldogs so it will be a bit of a shock, but at the same I'm looking forward to it, and hopefully I can have a good game."
